Ever since I update my IOS to Yosemite 10.10.1, any pdf link that I click on automatically wants to download rather than open in preview as before. Any fix for this?

What browser are you using? Have you installed Adobe Reader?

PDF Preview

What browser are you using? Have you installed Adobe Reader?

I am using Firefox most recently. I believe it is there. I see it in my launchpad and it says Adobe Reader XI version 11.0.10

Download is the normal behaviour in Safari (at least mine), but when Adobe Reader is installed it often inserts a plug in (hard to remove) that opens the PDF within the browser. In this case, it sounds like the Adobe Reader plug-in hasn't made it into Firefox.

Adobe Reader often likes to fool with PDF handling. In Firefox's preferences, go to Applications > search for PDF and change the type to "Preview in Firefox."

I found the place that you refer to but it doesn't give me "Preview in Firefox" as an option. Is there a way to add that? I have one program that I have to use Firefox with or would bag the whole browser! It has really become a pain!!
